Interactions between plants and soil organisms
This project was led by my PhD colleague Dr. Terhi Hahl.
In greenhouse experiments we assessed whether soil community history and plant selection history interact.
In two experiments we looked 1) at interactions between plants and mutualistic soil organisms (arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi) and 2) at soil microbial composition in response to plant diversity legacy effects.
The manuscript about the AMF experiment can be found here on BioRxiv.
